Massachusetts gas prices jump 14 cents a gallon, AAA Southern New England says

The average price of gas in Massachusetts was $3.599 a gallon in latest weekly AAA survey, up 14 cents from the previous week’s average, AAA Southern New England said Monday.

The big jump was attributable to recent increases in the price of crude oil, AAA Southern New England added.

AAA’s weekly surveys look at self-serve, regular unleaded gas.
